Homemade Wedding

We got a wedding invitation in the mail yesterday and it made me start to think / daydream about some of the fun ideas that we had when planning our own wedding oh so many moons ago. 1. Wine bottle guest book

This was the best!  We bought 10 bottles of wine (ranging from cheap0 to more expensive for the 10 year anniversary bottle) and made labels that the guests signed for each year.  Now, to celebrate our Anniversary each year, we have a bottle of wine ready and can read all of the signatures and messages from the guests of the wedding.

2.  Table "places" instead of Numbers

Instead of doing tables with numbers, we decided to name the tables after our favorite places on earth.  The tables' names were places we had traveled to together and we shared a funny story or memory on each table place card.  This was a good way for guests to kill some time and read a little story in case they were feeling shy at their table :)

3.  Chocolate Dipped Pretzel Favors - with homemade tags!

These were a fun way to give guests something to take home with them and included the information about the charities that we donated to in honor of several of our guests.
